New Zealand

New Zealand holidays are just amazing and as keeping excitement levels in check may prove an impossible task, just let go and scream 'ki ora'.

Nature tour in New Zealand
Memorable parts? The nature trips, guides and information for the whole trip. The open roads with no cars in sight sometimes for many many miles.

New Zealand holidays, tailor made
Memorable parts? We had a wonderful holiday. Loved New Zealand, what is there not to like? Beautiful countryside, lovely people, lots to do and a nation that is responsible in maintaining the environment. Hard to pick most memorable....both my husband and I did a 2 day horse trek and we had a ball. Then landing on a glacier in a ski plane was awesome. Can't overlook the wonderful people we met everywhere, they made the trip! My personal favorite place was Arthur's Pass at the Wilderness Lodge.... (more)Cathy Shiner

Heaphy Track hiking trip in New Zealand
The most memorable part of the track was coming down from the tussock highlands along the Heaphy River, emerging out of the forest and seeing the beaches of The Tasman Sea. (more)Allan Justus
A great experience particularly with the tour operator passing on so much information about the geography, flora, fauna and history. (more)Peter Ladd
Seeing the rare Blue Duck close up in it's natural environment was very special. I also loved being in the company of people from around the World who were passionate about the environment. (more)Wendy Grace
From NZ $1749 excluding flights
Antarctica and New Zealand Subantarctic Islands Wildlife Cruise
Memorable parts? The sub antarctic islands, wildlife and the icebergs. Tips? Prepare for a big sea voyage and lots of time to spare. Local benefits? There are no people, but the environment is excellent and getting better as recovery from last 2 centuries of exploitation has taken place. Nz and Aust governments should be congratulated on the feral pest controls. Overall rating? Up there with the big ones. (more)Robert Mock

New Zealand trekking holiday
Memorable parts? The scenery, the culture, the tour leader Mayuko was the best leader ever. Very friendly, helpful, warm, informative she made the holiday. Tips? Travel light there is a lot of moving around between train stations and bus stations etc. Food is limiting enough if you don't eat meat/fish. Be prepared to eat a lot of rice and noodles Local benefits? All of the above yes Overall rating? Very good. More travelling on buses and trains than I had... (more)Roisin Courtney
